Throughout countless lives, conflict is regarded as a common fact of life that one must endure. People must learn to handle stress and pressure while also being open to the ideas and feelings of others. Many more people over the years have tried to decipher the best way to deal with these unfortunate happenings and some have come within the smaller measure to achieving the great feat. While this may be a complicated and sinuous road to travel, the benefits of various practices can add amazing improvement to one’s way of living and can even help others in order to benefit all of society. Perhaps the best way to deal with conflict is to simply not give up or not stay silent when conflict and wrongdoings are happening such as in “Blood, Toil, Tears, and Sweat” by Winston Churchill and in “Nobel Peace Prize Acceptance Speech” by Elie Wiesel and perhaps a closer look must be taken at how these methods affect the situation, how they affect those involved, and how this can help with a person’s emotional well-being.
Has a parent ever been away on business? How did the house feel with out with? Lonely maybe even isolated. Did the remaining parent tried to bond with you? How did that feel? Probably awkward.

After reading Raymond Carver’s short story, “Popular Mechanics”, I instantly recognized the connection between Carver’s story and the story of King Solomon’s wisdom. In the biblical account of king Solomon’s reign; Solomon is approached by two women. Both women had both gave birth, one to a stillborn and one to a healthy baby. Both women claimed the healthy baby as their own child. Solomon answered this dilemma by deciding to cut the baby in half and present a piece to each mother; while one woman was alright with Solomon’s decree, the other woman pleaded for the child’s life. Solomon understood that the true parent would worry about the child’s welfare over her own happiness, so Solomon returned the baby to the rightful parent.

There is a constant tension or conflict between good and evil in the world. At times evil appears to be so dominant and powerful that we may even think evil to be supreme. But, sooner or later the momentary supremacy of the evil gives way to the ultimate triumph of good. We often blame the society or the political system for the evils that are being perpetrated in the world. But a close analysis will tell us that it is not the political system or the society that is responsible for the evil, but some individuals within the society or in the political system that perpetrate evil. Therefore, it is the individual who needs to bring-forth the change in

Many people today feel that, in 1969, Governor Ronald Reagan made what turned out to be one of the biggest mistakes of his political career. He signed the nation’s first no-fault divorce law, introducing an alternative to the now defunct fault-based divorce system. Prior to this law, couples could only file for divorce if a fault, such as adultery or cruel or inhuman treatment, had occurred. Sanford N. Katz, a Professor of Law at Boston College who received his A.B. from Boston University and J.D. from the University of Chicago, insists that divorced Americans suffered under the fault-based divorce system. He says fault-based divorce commonly led to secret collaborations between attorneys, judges, and defendants, and influenced the assignment
With divorce comes many negative reactions and coping mechanisms. Famous psychologist John Bowbly, who introduced the Theory of Attachment between parental figures and children when born, attributed two main emotions that come as a package when divorce is present: anger and hostility. Negative emotions are directly linked to how the adults in the situation handle the divorce. It is stated that if parental figures show anger and hostility before, after, and even during the divorce, the children involved will learn from their behavior and replicate it as a “normal model”. This is what Bandura called “The Social Learning Theory”. This can, in turn, reduce interpersonal outcomes in future relationships down the line. Also, when clinically
Infidelity can break up a home and the ending results can be divorce. When there are children involved, it might be challenging for the children to know what’s going on. In the Article "Children in Divorce: Intervention in the Phase of Separation,” Andre Derdeyn states that:
As well as the effect of the divorce, the child can have a psychological problem. In this case, divorce of parents can lead to signs of distress because of hurt feelings or loss of support from parents. A child may stop eating or have a hard time sleeping. A child may become more emotional. Some children are constantly worrying while others are angry or sad. Little children with divorced parents tend to throw more tantrums than those children of married parents. Children cry more often and are not as happy when their parents are divorced. This can lead to mental instability when the child becomes older, lower self-esteem which turns into bad behaviors. For instance, to run from the situation, the child will try hard to find the solution to make their feeling comfort. But, either it’s a negative or positive solution. It is a sad situation that is happening because the divorce of parents greatly harms the child 's relationships with people, school life, and their economic financial. Usually, the better the parents adjust to these losses, the better the children will adjust, and the fewer problems that will come
People in society either grow up with a father figure or without a father figure in their life. Those whose father’s do decide to stay in their child’s life have no idea how big of an impact they leave and it’s usually a good impact depending on the relationship between the father and child. A father is not there just to be a part of the child’s life, but to actually give some sort of guidance for the child. This is proven in “Beyond My Fathers Shadow” (Gordon Chambers), “The Boat” (Alistair MacLeod) and “Cages” (Guy Vanderhaeghe).
Today, the structure of what consisting a family is rapidly changing from the way it has been throughout the history. It is a common, unexpected and acceptable belief that there is a decline of fatherhood in America. Many children are living without a father figure in their homes or their fathers are completely absent from their lives. This is a dilemma across the world and has a significant effect on society. Children have to face with the disadvantages of growing up without a father and the consequences caused by the lack of support from them. Many studies have found that children who are raised without a father are more prone to have poor academic achievement, aggressive behavior, and a less likely to enjoy educational experience.
People with children often struggle to figure out how they are going to co-parent their child. They may also struggle to adjust to being single again.
